get following error :


This is a valid scenario for Shared Parental Leave is that the mother (employee) is still on Maternity Leave while the partner (not an employee) begins taking Shared Parental Leave.

How do I enter this into the Notices form? The Notices form does not accept an SPL Start Date before 04-OCT-2015 because the Mother is still on Maternity Leave until then. However, this means that I then cannot enter a Partner SPL Start Date of 28-JUN-2015. I get the error message SSP_36857_NOTICE_DATE_INV. If I only enter the Mother SPL Start Date and End Date (04-OCT-2015 to 06-FEB-2016) then when I click on the Summary button, it allocates 18 weeks of ShPP to the Mother, which is not correct - the Partner should have the first 14 weeks ShPP available and the Mother just the remaining 5 weeks ShPP.
